'Madonna?'


Well this morning I was rather productive, not only did I do my entry for Illustration Friday (last post), I also whipped this up. I bought some oil paints a while ago and haven't used them yet I guess it's because it's a bit more fiddley than the usual paints and it's a bit tricky with my 3 year old running around. But I do have some oil paint paper which is like canvas. So I tried my acrylics on this one.


I sketched this lady, not really knowing where I was going with it and for some reason I feel like I might have been chanelling Madonna......I decided to just use the paint for this one and resist the urge to go over some parts especially the eyes with pencil or pen and keep the painterly look instead......anyway I quite like the result and could see this one in a pendant.......

OMG...I REALLY like this one. It really moved me when I viewed it. You are inspiring, you know that? My life was been turned upside down about 8 months ago and I have had to start over with only what I could fit in my car. That situation has caused me to lose heart for alot of things I love to do...I love your blog (tears)...it touches me in a down time.

I do love the way you've painted the background, and of course that beautiful blue colour too! She has a lovely expression and I think if you want to add pencil then you should! It is your picture after all! ;)xx
